June is a busy month for us. We have two birthdays in the household, another birthday for my nephew and of course Fathers Day – So not being able to get out and about, hug our favourite people and celebrate together has been a bit of a struggle. One thing we have been able to do is to share, thanks to a huge bag of sweets we received from Swizzels.
Swizzels are a household name. You may remember some of their classics – Parma Violets, Drumstick lollies and Refreshers – from childhood, and who can forget reading the message on every single love heart to find the right one to give?
Knowing that we had a lot of birthdays coming up, Swizzels kindly sent us a huge 3kg bag of sweets to help celebrate.
We set to work dividing them up for friends and family. The girls especially loved choosing some for their cousins.
Included in the mix are different types of drumstick lollies, some fruity pops, parma violets, various chew bars, fizzers and love hearts – but if you prefer more of some and less of others, Swizzels have a whole range of selection boxes, bags and buckets for you to choose from, including vegetarian and vegan options.
We used our daily exercise to go on a bike ride and deliver sweets to the people we love and miss. It was a great excuse to get out and wave to everyone. Despite giving away so many, we still have loads of sweets left in the cupboard which I’m using as rewards for school work being completed and little treats to give our hard days a boost. We’ll probably still be working through them by Halloween!
The lovely people at Swizzels have also given me the opportunity to run a giveaway for my readers – so if you’ve got a sweet tooth or fancy spreading some joy to someone you miss, just enter with the Gleam options below.
